[Thewriter, is describing his experiences of thirty or more years ago ; doubtless all the arrangements are no.vv more modernised and improved]. Standing on this platform, and provided with a Davy lamp, which gives abput as much light as a farthing rush-light in its last flicker ing throes, and grasping tightly the supporting rope, the engine is started, and the descent into the cimmerian depths is commenced.
